THE WEB OF SUBVERSION

A collection of evidence on Communist infiltration in the government, this is based on material which has appeared in book and news print, the testimonies of Hede Massing and Elizabeth Bentley and Whittaker Chambers- and the many records of hearings before Congressional Committees. And in the dragnet you will find no new conspirators, but only the round-up of those who figured in Communist cells and operated at various government levels. Many names are named- from Alger Hiss and Harold Glasser and Harry Dexter White- to those which are less familiar as the investigation proceeds through the various government agencies (agricultural; economic; war) to the U.N. and the Department of State, and up to the White House, the Army, atomic energy, etc.... An alarmed and assiduous compilation of faces and facts, the finger- pointing identification here will give you a chance to test the assertion that the public will not eat ""warmed-up spy""; actually it's very dull. But for those who read more closely- there is a dangerous abuse of the process of guilt by association and implication.
